The QTL tab opens the QTL search window as shown below. QTL keywords can include the trait, such as "tiller number", or the specific QTL name, such as "EQC0042", "CQB7", "AQS424", or "S-krn1". The trait must be a specific trait, such as "Leaf rust" and not a general (parent) category such as disease resistance. Multiple keywords need to be separated by a comma. Wildcards (*) are supported in this field.
